R and D TV
- The title of this page given above is incorrect, due to technical limitations. The correct title is R&D TV.
At the end of the credits of every episode of the Re-imagined Series, Ron D. Moore and David Eick present themselves in cartoon form inside their office settling developmental arguments by maiming each other alternately in humorously creative and highly violent ways. This animation, produced by Jerry Hultsch, is the production logo (of sorts) for R & D TV, Battlestar Galactica's production company. Each cartoon is immediately followed by the NBC Universal logo.
The background pictures in the office also change periodically for unknown reasons.
The victim of each attack usually starts to suggest an idea ("Get this..!", "I think..", "I've got it..", etc.) as a lightbulb appears over the head of the episode's victim. This sign indicates that bloodshed, maiming, and/or death is about to begin. Luckily for the viewers, Ron and David are revived to write and produce again (before their next scheduled episode and subsequent R&D TV demise, at least).
Ron and David do not provide their own voices for the cartoon, but the creator of the skits impersonates their voices so well that Ron Moore has pointed out that most viewers don't notice.
- There is no R&D TV skit in the webisode series, Battlestar Galactica: The Resistance.
